Overview

Why plant a vegetable garden with the same old tomato and cucumber plants that everyone else has? Small Fruits in the Home Garden is your home gardener's guide to growing and harvesting small fruit for personal enjoyment. The contributors to this book provide the necessary information and helpful hints for you to grow many new varieties of small fruits, that have wonderful flavor but may not be suitable for commercial production, right at home. Now you can harvest the tastiest varieties at their peak flavor!

In Small Fruits in the Home Garden, you'll see how small fruits can enhance not only your diet, but also your garden and landscape. You'll learn how strawberry plants, for example, make wonderful perennial borders along paths and walkways and how currants, gooseberrries, and blueberries serve as “edible” hedges that are especially lovely in the summer when their branches are laden with colorful fruit.

Each chapter of this unique handbook provides detailed background and growing information on a particular fruit, with special attention to:

  • climate
  • soil
  • pests
  • water table
  • preplant operations
  • planting
  • management
  • pruning
  • fertilizing
  • liming
  • watering

    See how growing and harvesting small fruit can provide you with something nutritious and beautiful that doesn't demand too much free time. With Small Fruits in the Home Garden, you, too, can easily manage and enjoy small fruit growing.
